Exploring Fort Langley in the summer of 2012…
British Columbia is full of hidden treasures. Its beauty is found behind old growth trees, at the top of white tipped mountains and within majestic streams that dapple the countryside.

A road trip through Alberta’s David Thompson Trail.
Southern Alberta’s east-west Hwy. 11 takes its nickname from legen-dary English cartographer and fur trader David Thompson (1770-1857), who surveyed nearly four million square kilometers of North America for the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company. Today’s voyageurs-by-car will discover vintage trains, trading posts and trail rides along this more laid-back alternative to the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy. 1).

Traveling Slovenian Alps

 

The Vršič pass (1,611 m)

 Every time when we spend our holidays in Europe, I bring my bike with me and together with my cycling buddies, we do lots of bike riding. Two years ago we climbed Passo dello Stelvio and Passo Gavia in Italy. This time I brought a group of my friends with me, to climb the highest pass in Slovenia – Vršič.
